Ways to Clear Your Clutter

Whenever you clear the clutter in your house, you will have a collection of items that you no longer want.  Here are ideas to help you clear your clutter and your house and possibly make some money at the same time.

  • Dispose of them entirely and throw them out – making sure to separate into general rubbish and recycling
  • Have a family get-together and invite your family over to select what items they may want
  • Give everything to a charity or donate to your local school fete
  • Have a garage sale and watch gleefully as other people find items that are treasures to them
  • Sell items online with auction places like www.ebay.com.au or with a free listing service like www.gumtree.com.au
  • Use an eBay reseller to sell your items on eBay – they take a commission and you get rid of your items and earn money
  • List your items in the newspaper – often you can get your listing for free if your sale price is under a certain limit

What you do with the items you have decluttered depends on you.  If the thought of holding a garage sale or listing items online is overwhelming or you are simply disinterested or don’t have enough time, then donating or sharing your unwanted items may be the answer.  The key is to do what is right for you to move your unwanted things out of the house and off your property.
